If there is a quota, Kip has used it all up!!

Haven't seen any others here in Northern Ireland. I'm sure they are here somewhere though.....must leave cave and see!
Im in the uk and I don't see any! Only other one I have ever seen is my mates
There's lots here in Canary Wharf but I think that's because CW advertises heavily in the local glossy free magazine.

Oh, and the fact everyone in my office sees mine and asks 'What is that, is it a Rolex?' Then it's just a case of reeling them in[GRINNING FACE WITH SMILING EYES]

I saw one of my coworkers wearing a white dial, red bezel watch and my first thought is, is that a C60 Trident? So I creepily stared at his wrist until he lifted his arm and I saw the flag logo on his clasp. I asked him if it was a CW and he was just as excited as I am. He took it off and showed it to me. We talked about watches for a bit, and how I wanted a black face, red bezel GMT. He said his next buy would be a C9 Moon phase. Pretty cool conversation.

Same. I'm in the US as well and saw someone with a C3 Malvern MK II. To be fair, that "someone" is a friend who I made the recommendation to 8).

Just once for me too, though overall seeing a few more watches now than before, but that's probably because I'm looking.

Out in the Highlands with some driving buddies yesterday. 8)

At one of the "banter stops" I suddenly noticed one of the guys was wearing a C700. 8) so we had a quick watch chat. :D other multiple-lovely-car-owning mate was showing off his rather nice Hublot.

Quick shot of a small part of the group..... you wait all day for a Mini GP to come along, and then two appear and box you in. :problem:

I saw 2 people in my tube carriage last week with CWs on , one C700 the auto version and a trident diver, I thought it was rare to see that many CEs in such a small space. Only other time I see more is at SalonQP each year

I live in the USA and have never met anyone who has even heard of CW. Then again, there are not that many watch enthusiasts in daily life, it seems.
